Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019)

When it comes to Pokémon, let’s just say that I was the perfect age to be placed in the thick of the phenomenon. I played the Game Boy games, I collected the cards, I even owned a bunch of those blue pebbles that hardly anyone knew what to do actually do with, it was a…
